Not every vehicle accident involves your everyday car or a semi-truck. There are many other types of vehicles people operate every day, on and off public roads. These include all-terrain vehicles (ATV) and recreational vehicles (RV). Unfortunately, as fun and safe as these vehicles can be, they can also be involved in serious and catastrophic accidents. When you are a hurt in an ATV or RV crash, you should contact our ATV accident lawyers at Studinski Law, LLC. These accidents have many similarities to car accidents, but also many differences. We have years of experience handling these types of claims and can guide you through the process of seeking compensation for your injuries.

The term ATV encompasses motorized off-highway vehicles designed with four low-pressure tires, a single seat, and handlebars for steering. Most of these off-road vehicles are meant for a single person to drive. However, there are some now designed for a driver and passengers. There are also occasionally three- or six-wheel versions. Engine sizes for ATVs in the U.S. range from 49 to 1,000 CC.
An RV is quite different. This is a much larger motor vehicle intended for public roads. It includes not only a vehicle component but a living area, which often has a kitchen area, bathroom, and bedroom. These are sometimes called motorhomes, campers, and caravans. There are numerous types, including those that attach to another vehicle like a trailer or are a vehicle in and of itself.
Both ATVs and RVs can be operated safely like more common cars, vans, trucks, and SUVs. However, just like with these other types of vehicle, careless, reckless, or intentionally harmful driving can result in tragic accidents.
